Mathematics
The Mathematics Department offers coursework in all levels of mathematics from arithmetic through differential equations and linear algebra. Students seeking improvement in their basic mathematical skills and those desiring development of advanced mathematical methods can all find meaningful activities in the mathematics program. While there are job opportunities in pure mathematics, there are even more in education, business, engineering, and other technical fields that rely on mathematics. Students planning to transfer to a four-year institution and major in mathematics or a related field should consult with a counselor regarding the transfer process and lower division requirements.
Sequence of Mathematics Courses at SBVC
Students pursuing an AS-T in Mathematics or a STEM major are recommended to follow the STEM track sequence. Non-STEM majors should take a course in the non-STEM track, if required. Please contact a counselor to see what course is appropriate for your educational goals. Eligibility to enroll in a mathematics course is subject to the SBVC Self-Guided Placement. Please contact a counselor for details.
